Saving You, Saving Me by Kaitlin Gow Blog Tour Stop!

Hey Remarkable Readers,
Today I'm hosting a stop on the blog tour for Saving You, Saving Me by Kaitlin Gow!  I have an excerpt from the book for you!  You can check out the other stops on the tour right here! Without further Adieu, here's the summary and excerpt, Enjoy!

Sam never thought she would fall for the one mysterious guy she has been speaking to over the phone for months, the boy the counselors called Daggers. She wasn’t supposed to talk to him outside of their sessions. But as she began to peel the layers of Daggers and learn who he is, the one boy she is supposed to be saving, might just be the one who is saving her.

I sat back and watched her, trying to look interested. As she waited to be connected to the center’s director, I glanced out the window of her office and into the hallway of the school administration office, trying to avoid her eyes, in case she saw the doubt in them. 
It was a momentous glance, something I’m sure would have counted as one of the biggest moments of my life against which every other moment in my young life would pale. I did a double take as my eyes made contact with the coolest ice blue eyes I’d ever seen, and they belonged to Collins McGregor - the youngest mogul music producer featured on the cover of the latest issue of People Magazine. I felt my mouth dropped, but quickly recovered when Collins McGregor broke his gaze and a pink flush went up his cheeks. 
He was better-looking than his photos, and I couldn’t help staring at him, from his slightly messy wavy blonde hair, his sculpted cheeks and full sensual rocker lips, his tall and lean muscular body to his John Lobb-clad leather shoes. Dressed in a crisp white shirt and a silk small-patterned herringbone pale blue tie that matched his eyes, he looked every inch like a confident cocky young music mogul. Looking further down his tall and muscular frame was another story.  Snug well-worn denim jeans hung off his hips in a sexy way that showed off powerful muscular legs and a tight butt. An expensive Italian black leather motorcycle jacket finished the ensemble. He was the picture of a hot bad boy music mogul. In person, he was gorgeous and stylish, exuding a confidence that permeated the room. Collins McGregor may be a music mogul, but he had the look and presence of a rock star. There was definitely something about him that kept me mesmerized. What was Collins McGregor doing at Cliffside Academy? 
“Sam?” Dr. Green’s voice interrupted my almost naughty thoughts of Collins. 
I whipped my face so quickly from staring at Collins McGregor to Dr. Green’s questioning face, I almost had whiplash. “Yes,” I muttered, looking first at my hands and then at Dr. Green.
“Well,” she said smiling. “You’re in. You start this week. They had a peer volunteer who had to quit because she had to go back to college. They’re understaffed and could really use your help.”
“So when do I start?” I asked, shaking images of Collins McGregor out of my head. 
“This Friday. They’ll give you the orientation first and start you off with a practice call,” Dr. Green said. “That’s what Gail told me. You should get a packet in the mail in a few days with all the information.”  Dr. Green smiled a big Cheshire cat smile. “So, what do you think?”
I threw up my hands and shrugged. “I’ll give it a try, Dr. Green.  Thank you for getting me in so fast. I’m sure if you hadn’t been involved, I wouldn’t be starting this Friday.”
“Oh, it’s nothing,” Dr. Green said. “I really think you have it in you to do this, Sam. You have to let me know how it goes…” She stood up, and walked to the door, signifying the end of our meeting.  I stood up, smoothed out my navy pleated miniskirt, my soft pink ruffled blouse, and tucked my long wavy dark hair that came loose around my face, behind my ears, and walked out. 
“Oh, wait,” Dr. Green’s voice called. I turned around, and she handed me the young adult center’s brochure. I raised the brochure and nodded, turning around to head back outside. “Oh, Sam!” Dr. Green called. She walked towards me with my white cardigan. “You forgot this.”
“Thank you,” I said.  Now I was going to be late for class if I didn’t hurry out. I rushed out and bumped face first into something hard. When did a wall get put up outside the counselor’s office? Then I lost my balance and landed on my butt, everything flying out of my hands as I tried to stop myself from falling harder.
